mathieuc (1146) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle thanks to myknewcraft, thanks a lot! 2012 vintage. Pours a hazy (murky, even) copper with a small white head that leaves light lacing. Nose is of acetic acid, lightly fruity. Taste is not quite bracingly acid but still pack quite a lot of vinegar along with some unindentified fruits (not blackberries). No signs of the wine barrels except if said barrels were of somewhat cheap wine. Body is medium, carbonation low to medium. It feels somewhat winey, but the acetic presence kills it a little. Not bad, drinkable, but not a top tier sour. Sorry.

VinegarStroke (262) - Napa, California, USA - JUN 21, 2014
bottle (750ml): Cloudy, light copper red. No head or lace. Funky, sour red fruit, slightly lactic. Fresh but feral though not to the level of spoilage. No VA. Brett and lactic. Very dry and sour. Low bitterness. Warm, especially with chili, long, balanced along with an even texture. Complexed, very refreshing and balanced with any massice spoilage dominating. Lovely beer.
